Best Dad Ever

My eldest son's girlfriend asked me to make a card for her Father's Birthday, the only brief I had was it had to have something to do with 'fishing' - this is what I came up with.


I have used Alf Fishing from the DigiStamp Boutique and coloured him with ProMarkers.


The sentiment is also from the DigiStamp Boutique and my papers are from Nitwit Collections.  I inked the edges of all of the papers and used a Clearly Besotted Scalloped Border die on the central border panel.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

DigiStamp Boutique February Customer Competition - Use a DigiStamp Boutique Image
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge 132 - Make Your Mark
Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Pia S said...

How sweet of you to make card on the request of your son's girlfriend. It sounds like it fits her requirements perfectly. It's sweet and has that kind of style which is masculine but feels young enough to be given by a teenaged/young adult daughter...

Nancy said...
